I’m almost scared to say it, for fear of jinxing myself, but I actually had a much better day today. My throat was still sore, but overall the pain never got above a 4 out of 10. I slept from midnight until 10:00 a.m., waking every four hours to take a pain pill and go right back to sleep. In fact, my baby and cats all slept until I woke up, so Daddy had the house to himself all morning long. I’m sure he’d tell you it was glorious.
For the first time since my surgery, I did not nap or even so much as lay down once I got up today. I was able to do some light house-keeping (putting away laundry, picking up after my son, that sort of thing). I made a YouTube video for my channel (with, admittedly, very little talking in it, as my throat still feels tight and it sounds like I’m talking through a ball of cotton). I video chatted my parents and Josh’s grandparents and aunt. I had a little extra energy (possibly due to the delicious, vitamin-packed protein shake I had for brunch), so I did a manicure and pedicure, too. I feel like I packed a week’s worth of activities into one day. I’m sure I’ll feel it tomorrow.
It was just so wonderful to feel relatively good. This is what summer is supposed to be about. Look out, s’mores: I’ll be coming for you soon.
Peace and love.
